Student enrollment in Kuna schools is at an all time high of 5,400 students! Our secondary schools are OVER capacity and three of our elementary schools are AT capacity. In the next 3 years with the current growth rate, we expect an additional 700 new students.
On March 14, 2017, Kuna voters approved a $40m bond measure to add 4 additional classrooms to Reed & Silver Trail Elementary, Convert Teed Elementary to a Middle School, Renovate Kuna Middle School, Add a new Multi-Purpose Athletic Room to KHS, and build a new 500 student High School with CTE (Career Technical Education) Facilities. They also approved a $2.5m Supplemental Levy which will be used to update Curriculum (teaching and learning materials for teachers and students such as textbooks and electronic resources) , Technology and provide Health and Safety positions.
The district will complete the following projects:
|Elementary Projects||$5 Million|
|Middle School Projects||$6 Million|
|High School Projects||$25 Million|
|Critical Improvements||$4 Million|
|TOTAL BOND AMOUNT||$40 Million|
Total combined tax rate for 2018 will be the same as it currently is. The current tax rate is $5.00 per every $1,000 taxable value. Below is a graph showing the 2018 tax rate and what portion will be spent on supplemental and bond. You can also see by planning on keeping the rate $5.00 per $1,000 that we will be able to grow with the community which is our 20 year plan.
